Who to take? Microbiology DCCCD

Hi!

I am going to take Microbiology this summer. Does anyone have either a professor they really LIKED or know of one to AVOID? I don't know if we are able to post names on these threads, so if you have any advice..please message me.

Thank you!

The person I took at Brookhaven last summer is AWESOME! To date the most knowledgeable teacher I have ever had! I am not going to sugar coat it, she was tough (especially since it was summer semester) but I would recommend her because she pushes you to be your best and you really learn in her class.

PLEASE DO NOT POST NAMES

Thanks! I was just looking her up on ratemyprofessor.com... The only thing that may keep me from her class is the times it is offered this summer. I live in Rowlett, so Richland is the nearest campus, but I have been driving to North Lake all Spring for A&P I and II. Brookhaven is in the middle, so I will prob make it work.

friendly terms of service reminder

per the terms of service of this site, please do not post names, initials, or contact information of professors or other school officials on the public board. it is better to communicate this type of information via the private message system.

as stated in the terms of service:

while it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following:

  1. it is a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in some personal info, there is actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you are not careful. your privacy is paramount to us.
  2. while allnurses.com is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. gripe away, but since we cannot permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated.
  3. please do not give out personal information about others. do not name names where anyone could identify the person in any facility including your nursing programs.

thank you for your cooperation.

Check out Summer 1 listing @ Richland- BIOL 2421-8202. I am currently taking this professor and she is very thorough, and provides a lot of helpful resources in addition to her powerpoints. She is not an "easy A", but if you study her reviews you will do well in her class. BIOL 2421 is for Science Majors which has more content than 2420, but is guaranteed to transfer to more schools, if you are interested in that. If you are able to wait until fall, everyone's favorite professor will be teaching both versions!I had a scheduling conflict this semester and couldnt take her... Micro is intense and might be better suited for a longer semester anyway. Check out the old listings (Spring 2010) BIOL 2421-8501 and BIOL 2420-8004 to get her name. Avoid the instructor of 2420-8501 (taught in the spring). I hope this doesn't confuse you! These instructors are all at Richland.

I HOPE YOU DIDNT TAKE 8203!!!! IF SO i was in your class.. WAS

I know summer semester is almost over but did you end up taking it at Brookhaven? If so, you are in my class :)

please PM me with the name of this professor. I have to take that class too and am dreading getting someone that's not organized or thoroughly teaches the subject.

Thanks for your help!

Can you please PM the name of "everyone's favorite professor"?

The old schedules are no longer available and I would really like some input on who might be the best fit for me.

Thanks for your help!

I hadn't realized you had taken it at Brookhaven. THanks for your quick response!

No problem!! Im sorry I don't....I never took any classes at Richland. The teacher I pm'ed you is very well liked at Brookhaven though. ;) Good luck with your classes!!

I took Micro at Richland. I PM-ed another poster to recommend a teacher but I don't remember his/her username, so sorry if I'm repeating the info.

If you check the Spring 2012 and go to BIOL 2401 - 8002 or 8005, that professor is really good. Crystal clear lectures and engaging labs. Not an easy A, but the best instructor if you really want to learn. She teaches several science courses.
